I don't do much lightheartedly, and yea I'm often on the pessimistic side of things... but I don't do/say things maliciously or with hatred - at least that's not my intention.

Sarcasm, and tone of voice aren't something that translate well in this medium.

Speaking of music... Mick Jones played his last show with the band (and thusly the end of the Clash) at Woz's US Festival in 83.

Saw the Clash open for the Who and JFK Stadium in '82. I was really looking forward to the performance, unfortunately the band was nearly done at that point and it was coming through on stage. The crowd started booing the lackluster performance about 3 songs in and they basically asked if we wanted to hear anymore. Being Philadelphia, the crowd responded in the way we knew best and they walked off the stage.

yeah, sarcasm definitely doesn't translate well in this medium, regardless whose keyboard you are using to type on.

Indeed. A Topper-less Clash just isn't The Clash. Plus I'm sure the tension between Jones and Strummer was highly evident on stage.

The city that threw snowballs at Santa... hahaha! Did they expect a different answer to that question?

Amazingly some of the songs performed at the US Fest weren't too bad, but some were just way out of whack.

"A Topper-less Clash just isn't The Clash."

How right you are.

Now you guys go grab a slice at Fellini's and have a beer at the Star Bar.

Yea, then again, I haven't lived there in well over a decade. That said, I'll be back when drivin n cyrin release their first new album in 11 years this year and hit up the Charleston, Savannah and other area fun spots in the back of the van....

Wow - that's a bit of a difference.
